Ep 138: The Vanishing Half by Brit Bennett
Anna and Annie discuss the Miles Franklin Award winner, The Yield by Tara June Winch.
Our book of the week is The Vanishing Half by Brit Bennett, the follow up to her best-selling debut The Mothers. The story of twin sisters, race and passing as white in America, it spans 40 years from the 1950s to the 1990s. It is already a New York Times Best-selller, described as ‘utterly mesmerising’ by Bernardine Evaristo and has been compared with Toni Morrison. We highly recommend this one.
Coming up: All Our Worldly Goods by Irène Némirovsky translated by Sandra Smith for Women in Translation Month. #WITMonth
